We’re excited to announce that Newark Center for Meditative Culture is leasing a space in Downtown Newark as our community center for both weekly and unique programming. Starting yesterday, October 1st, NCMC is located at:
2 Park Place
Newark, NJ 07102
It’s a central convenient location on the corner of Broad Street and Park Place and we’re looking so forward to engaging with our community there.
Starting Tuesday, October 8th we will have Tuesday Hours from 6:00 to 9:00pm. We will begin there with a 10-week series of Weekly Meditation & Mindful Movement Classes with Javier and Jennifer from 6:30 to 7:45pm. They will also continue to provide Monthly Mindfulness & Meditation Workshops in the Ironbound starting on October 21st.
Later in October we plan to begin Wednesday Hours from 6:00 to 9:00pm, starting with Andrea facilitating a Mindful Activism Book Group Series using books by reputable and well-known teachers engaged in mindful activism. This group will run for several weeks from 7:45 to 8:45pm.
Then beginning Wednesday, November 6th, Shaka will begin a Tai-Chi Series. They will run for 6 weeks each with breaks so that students can build on their mastering. These classes most likely will start at 6:30. (Don’t forget our outdoor Tai-Chi Classes in Military Park with himare still on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:30 through October 16th. Today will be a hot one!)
On Sunday, November 10th, NCMC will hold our first men’s retreat day off-site at Index Art Center, From Kneeling to Self-Healing: A Call for a Men’s Martial Meditation Medicine Movement. It includes six presenters and will consist of a short talk on the critical importance of men incorporating Self-Healing protocols into their daily lives, Meditation, Qi Gong exercises, Sexual Health and Fitness, Wilderness Therapy, Medicine Drum Circle, and a talk about Healing Generational Trauma.
It is open to youths aged 14 and older and we believe it will prove to be a positive, even transformational, experience for our men and boys. Please go here for more information or to register.
We hope you will consider joining us for any of these programs we’re providing to our community. And if you’d like to show your support to NCMC for them, please do consider making a small donation through the link below.
Thank you all for your continuing support of Newark Center for Meditative Culture.
Peace and love,
Kazi, Marcie, Cornelia, Andrea, Ihsaan, Kamilah, Jennifer, Javier
